This Week’s Theme: Fairy Tales, Folk Tales and Legends

January 25th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Author! Author!, Weekly theme

Private note to the second-grade boys: Fairy tales are not just for girls. Sometimes they’re gory, or creepy, or have really, really bad endings. You’ll like them. Just sayin’.

Library Motto of the Week: Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Private note to the eighth-grade students: You’ll be in high school soon enough. Let’s not rush things. PS — fairy tales and folk tales are not just for the little kids.

Private note to everyone: If it has “DISCARD” stamped in it, it means you can KEEP IT.

My favorite library books this week: “Is This a House for Hermit Crab?” by Megan McDonald, illustrated by S.D. Schindler; “If…” by Sarah Perry; “Do Not Open This Book!” by Michaela Muntean, illustrated by Pascal Lemaitre; “Beetle Bop,” by Denise Fleming; “Harriet the Spy,” written and illustrated by Louise Fitzhugh; and all of the Edward Eager books.
